I get it some too. One case in point.

Upon returning from my deployment to Iraq we had a 90 day post deployment health assessment. I told the Physician I drank 2 at night and 5 or 6 on the weekends. Which was the truth. So he put it into his calculator and voila I'm a raging alcoholic (per Army standards). Well needless to say I was set up with counseling. Not only that but my command gave me a nice chewing out for being honest and not giving the standard answer of "none". So, yeah, now I try not to tell many people about this.

"Yeah,it loks like a meth lab or something!" how in the blue **** does this ho know what a meth lab looks like? Let alone smell like? No noctious chemicals here assclown. No lab equipment. No pill presses. No strange cars coming & going. No serious money being spent on the house that I've earned. ****ing dumbass assclown butt munchers!!!!!!!

i get what denny said a ton, but i also get a few weary people. Everyone at work knows i brew, there is another gentleman here that brews as well. i just let it slip... if they're going to be uneduated at the situations they are commenting on, they don't need my attention.

"you home brew? must be that dark nasty crap" "you have a kegerator at your house?? you must drink everynight!"

Showdown,you bet...& I haven't even saddled my pony yet! Well,that's how I really do feel about our detractors. Friggin assclowns. They likely have never done a drug in there useless lives,but all of a sudden,they're experts. The worst form of hypocrisey.

I'm glad it's not just me in a way. I hate it when they look for excuses to hate. It's so pathetic...

I had a thought knocking around in my head about this. I was at a beer dinner at a local restaurant and the head brewer from the featured brewery was there. He said "It used to be that the only thing you could pair with beer was pizza" and went on to talk about how craft brewing has become so sophisticated that we can make incredible pairings with food.

I bet we could get through to at least some of these nitwits with that kind of talk. "I've carefully crafted a beer recipe that pairs perfectly with my BBQ ribs/secret chili recipe/herb roasted chicken/homemade knackwurst/grilled salmon etc. and the whole family loves it"

Says the guy from Eugene OR. Of course!

Overall I get very mixed responses much like that you mention. If I was making wine, people would understand and think I was sophisticated, since it is beer, the ideology is completely different.

The people who I have had over to see my equipment and actually drink it start to really understand.

The Mr. must have told plenty of people that I've started brewing. My BIL delivers "grain" of some type to a brewery, and says he can get some for me cheap as well as their beer at wholesale prices. Someone else has given up drinking and offered me a wort chiller and an IPA ingredient kit. So I've gotten positive responses so far.
